Liverpool supporters faced difficulties last season when trying to purchase tickets for the Champions League final against Real Madrid in Kiev.
On website Ticketbis, the cheapest seat in Liverpool’s section, face value £140, was priced at £1,181.
Liverpool fans were critical of how supposedly fellow supporters were buying tickets only to sell them for huge profit on re-selling sites.
‘The situation is ridiculous,’ Liverpool fan Neil Atkinson told the BBC. ‘People who don’t support either club will end up with tickets and look at it as an opportunity to make money.’
Liverpool also warned supporters that ‘under no circumstances should tickets for the final be purchased from unofficial sources… The club is aware of instances of tickets being sold at extortionate prices’.
